Trailer Hitch for 2013 Honda Accord Sport

Question:

I want to purchase the 2-bike hitch listed below. Reese - 2 Bike Hitch Mounted Folding Rack w/ Frame Mount Cradles for 1-1/4inch Hitch. Item # 63120 What is the correct hitch that I would need to purchase/install on my 2013 Honda Accord Sport? Also, I already have a 2inch hitch on my Ford Edge. Is there an adapter that I can purchase to correctly fit the Reese bike rack listed above so that the 1-1/4inch will fit snugly/safely into my 2inch hitch on my Ford Edge? Thanks

For your 2013 Honda Accord Sport I can confirm that the Curt # C11681 trailer hitch is a fit and will work with the Reese 2 Bike Rack # 63120. Please note that with this hitch, all non-trailer loads such as bike racks and cargo carriers need to be supported with Stabilizing Straps # 18050 to maintain the warranty.

Additionally, please note that when using any hanging rack like the Reese # 63120 you'll need bike frame adapter bar # 64005 if your bike is dual-suspension, has a step-through frame or you want to carry a small children's bike. The bar will give those bikes a horizontal mounting point so they can be carried by the rack.

There is a hitch reducer available, the MaxxTow Trailer Hitch Receiver Adapter - 2" to 1-1/4" Hitch # MT70033; you will need to use Pin and Clip # PC3 in order to secure the adapter in your hitch.
